...why I bother.
Seriously, though, I think the only reason I still submit art on DA is because it's a compulsion. In reality I'm not well known and I don't get a lot of favorites or comments on a daily basis. And I know it's because I'm not technically a visual artist, I'm a writer, and some people get lucky with their notoriety. I don't put enough time into my drawings to be a "serious" artist.
But with all these thoughts in mind, it makes me wonder why I do it. (Boy, does it sound like I'm whining, and I guess I am in a way... ) Maybe it's because I still enjoy viewing other people's art and being part of the community, even if there is a slow migration to other social network sites going on. There really are some AMAZING artists on DA, and I love seeing the pieces they produce. I guess that's reason enough to continue?
